I've got a couple of OES Linux SP2 servers in our tree and am having problems with the above users.

On one server (heston) everything is fine:

heston:/var/tmp # id novlxregd
uid=81(novlxregd) gid=81(novlxtier) groups=81(novlxtier)

heston:/var/tmp # namuserlist -x cn=novlxregd,o=flyt_house
novlxregd:x:81:81:Novell XRegD System User:/var/opt/novell/xtier/xregd:/bin/false

heston:/var/tmp # namuserlist novlxregd
novlxregd:x:81:81:Novell XRegD System User:/var/opt/novell/xtier/xregd:/bin/false


However on another server (lightning) it's not fine:

lightning:/var/tmp # id nolvxregd
id: nolvxregd: No such user

lightning:/var/tmp # namuserlist -x cn=novlxregd,o=flyt_house
novlxregd:x:81:81:Novell XRegD System User:/var/opt/novell/xtier/xregd:/bin/false

lightning:/var/tmp # namuserlist novlxregd
No such object exists


I get the same results (i.e id and nameuserlist by name do not work, namuserlist by context does) for

novlxregd user
novlxsrvd user
novlxtier group

Also, wwwrun is a locally define user on both systems and neither system has a novlwww user.

Any ideas as to what to do to fix this proble?
